Neither sky nor space is the limit when it comes to Star Citizen’s funding. Chris Roberts’ (of Wing Commander fame) space sim has reached the $8 million mark.  

Star Citizen was a project originally placed on Kickstarter, where it met its goal and vastly surpassed it. Over 142,000 pledges have been made by backers, with over $500,000 raised just in February.

“The amount of support we are seeing from our fans is nothing short of amazing,” says Roberts, CEO and creative director at Cloud Imperium Games. “Our backers are totally connecting with the development team and it just gets them so excited to come into the office every day and work to make the next great space sim.”

Star Citizen will release on PC.
